@brian_lovin ✋🏼 I’ve been in that position twice. First time I was able to sell the idea of a DS but I had to own that project. As the only designer I just had 25% of my time for that and had to build it too.

The first company needed to ship faster and had a base product built so I designed in the browser, there’s actually no design file for that one 😳

I was heavily inspired of the top DS and the bright people behind it. Still pretty proud of the work and result. design.rtshawkeye.com

It's you, a designer working at a startup. The design debt is accumulating, but you have to Move Fast and Ship Things. You know you need a design system, but it's not clear where to start, or even where to find the time to start paying back the debt. Who has been here and …

Does all clubhouse rooms just talk about how great, breakthrough, etc etc clubhouse is? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So even in design rooms they’re talking about the design of clubhouse 🙄 Haven’t found something worth staying. At least in podcasts you can fast forward the bits you’re not interested.

🎉 The first episode of my new podcast, Design Spotlight, is out now! I sit down with @ryngonzalez to discuss design infrastructure teams and the challenges with growing a team that can design systems across many diverse platforms. https://t.co/8dkB8REQA7

I couldn’t find you in overcast, is it going to be Spotify only?

@dvassallo When my kids were very young, I connected work with “helping people” So now when I leave, they know I’m going to help people, they view it as a positive, and they talk often about wanting to go work to help people. It’s not perfect, but it has made a big …

This is a great explanation, for sure I’ll try it with mine that are still too young to ask…

Today @wdavidmarx and I did a breezy ~30km walk into Tokyo and this fire department training in a random residential ‘hood was just maximally spontaneous and beautiful and bizarre: https://t.co/GABCdflHOv

Tokyo is such a great city to walk around. I want to go back so much. Hopefully soon after things get better.
